Summary: I needed a monitor to stop me from going blind running Final Cut Pro at home. I usually do broadcast quality work out of a post facility on either Avid or Final Cut. I didn't want to invest too much for the webisode work I sometimes do from home. It's great to see the Canon 5D and 7D footage at full resolution and gives me lots of real estate for my timeline. I use my laptop for the browser window.
Summary: Overall, I am happy with the monitor. The images are great. The size and ability to adjust it many directions is fantastic. The big drawback is the speakers. No matter what I do, everything sounds like it is in a tunnel. It can be disorienting/annoying over time. So, I don't use the built in speaker. I have an HP monitor for my other computer (used to be on this computer) with built in speakers which are fantastic.
Summary: I ordered this believing NEC could make a decent monitor for this price ... I wasn't looking for bells and whistles ... just solid standard performance. What I got was a piece of junk ... the illumination is terrible ... bright at the bottom, dark at the top ... at least 1/2 f/stop but maybe more like an entire one. This makes doing any kind of accurate Photoshop work impossible ... plus the viewing angle is critical ...

Summary: Order a pair of these for home office, and I am really pleased. The build quality is top notch, no dead pixels, and all the accessories were included. NEC calls these "enterprise displays" because the housing is very simple matte black, with only a single blue LED to indicate power. The stands are perhaps the best feature as they allow for several inches of height adjustment, angle of display, and rotating the whole thing 90 degrees to portrait mode.
Summary: I got this as a gift for my wife and like it very much. The monitor was very well packaged and came with all cables. (DVI, SVGA, regular audio, digital audio & power cord). I had the monitor unpacked and on the desk in two minutes. The cord hider on the back of the monitor worked quite well to make sure all of the cables were hidden. I did find the monitor very bright as did my wife. She needed the brightness turned down immediately.
Summary: Comments about NEC MultiSync EA241WM-BK Widescreen LCD Monitor: I think when was more monitor available with resolution 1920x1200 was easier to find good monitor like LG W2452T. Now we have few monitor with the quality and resolution 1920x1200, so if want sharp image, Brightness and real Contrast Ratio you cannot be wrong buy this monitor. The Adjustable the position of this monitor is excellent also.
Summary: Comments about NEC MultiSync EA241WM-BK Widescreen LCD Monitor: I did a lot of research before I bought this 24" monitor from NEC. The NEC site actually offers a lot of information on monitor selection. I am an NEC monitor fan. This is the second monitor I have hooked up on my PC. The other one is also a recently purchased NEC MultiSync LCD225WNXM (22"), which replaced an older a 17" NEC Accusync model.
Summary: Dual screen PC setup. Needed a second monitor to match one I already had. Liked the ease of access to adjustment controls and specially its ability to rotate 90 degrees so I can view portrait images as large as possible when photoediting in Adobe's Lightroom and Photoshop. It does not automatically adjust the orientation but I leave open the screen resolution control panel and it is done with a couple of mouse clicks.
Summary: Ok, when I was looking for monitors one of the prime items on the list is that it had not be black, and white was ideal. Secondly it had to have good colour and also a more compact pixel to match up with my Powerbook 17" it mates to, as the jump in pixel size to the average monitor is about 15% which is irritating when moving work between screens. Which brings me to the main thing I like about this screen- it fits what is effectively a 26" screen into 24"...
